River Run Conservation Area

This 0.39 acre parcel is located on Carpenter Street next to the Palmer River. Remnants of an old dam and a fish ladder support the history of a large pond at this site where neighbors skated in the winter. Now this scenic, shaded spot is enjoyed for wading and play and quiet contemplation along the west branch of the Palmer River.

River Run is open to the public and accessed from Carpenter Street.
